Chandigarh, February 21

New UT Adviser Rajeev Verma today said ending the parking woes of the city residents is his top priority.

During an interaction with select mediapersons here today, he said his working style was different and he had set goals for the officers to take the city to the next level in every field. He said Chandigarh was a planned city and officers were doing a good work, but he wanted the things should be further streamlined.

While talking about the ever-growing problem of parking in residential as well as commercial areas of the city, he said it was his top priority. He added that he would leave no stone unturned to resolve the issue.

It may be mentioned that Chandigarh has the highest density of vehicles in India and parking has been a major issue here. Vehicles parked on pavements, roadsides and parks outside houses cause congestion on roads and inconvenience to pedestrians and residents. Inner roads of sectors are narrow and at some places, cars are parked on both sides of the road. The problem is more in southern sectors. The Administration has earlier considered community parking facility and stilt parking in new houses.

After years of deliberations, the Administration had notified the parking policy in December 2020, but failed to implement it. The Administration then decided to revise the policy to make it more effective.

On redressing grievances of the residents, the UT Adviser assured that general public would not be harassed and officials would remain present in their respective offices during the public meeting hours to resolve their issues. Verma said he would also focus on taking advantage of information technology to make departmental works easy.

Problem grave in southern sectors
